• Description: In this panel, you'll hear from three different instructors who have incorporated Wikipedia assignments into their courses. The Wikipedia
assignment is a simple, but powerful concept. Students contribute to Wikipedia as an assignment in their course and get to do work that really matters. They gain critical digital literacy skills all while improving Wikipedia's coverage in a range of fields.
Heidi Schutz is Associate Professor of Biology at Pacific Lutheran University. Katie Holt is Associate Professor of History; Latin American Studies; Global
and International Studies Department Chair; Liaison to Digital and Visual Storytelling Pathway at the College of Wooster, and Tobias Fischer is Professor
in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at the University of New Mexico. Join us as these three faculty discuss their different experiences running
Wikipedia assignments in their courses. The program will be moderated by Helaine Blumenthal, Senior Program Manager at Wiki Education. To learn more about
